Astronaut Alan B. Shepard, Jr.

Space - The final frontier....Join us for a tribute to pioneering astronaut Alan B. Shepard, Jr., the first American in space ... and the first to play golf on the moon. Leonard Nimoy, who played Star Trek's Mr. Spock, interviewed Shepard four years ago, for the 25th anniversary of the first lunar landing. In honor of Shepard's passing, we'll rebroadcast the interview, today on The Politics of Culture.
